Another Day, Another IRL

We had such a busy day meeting more blogger friends!

First up: this morning we went to the AZ Museum of Natural History to meet Michelle and her two boys - Ryan and Matthew. Matthew is a year older than Kayla and those 2 sure kept us on our toes! Michelle and I hardly had any time to really sit and talk because we were so busy chasing after the kids :) I kept asking her questions, and then would run off in the middle of her answer because Kayla decided she was done with the exhibit we were at LOL We had a fun time with them at the museum though!

Matthew and Kayla checking out the bones:


Joe and Kayla panning for gold:


Kayla and Matthew panning for gold - and they both had matching wet clothes when they were finished!


Kayla tired of me taking pictures!


Instant friends!


Michelle and me with our kiddos (I can't believe I didn't get a pic of her son Ryan!) Thanks for meeting us at the museum Michelle!


Next up: Later that evening we met Sandra and her family at a mall! It was so nice to hang out with them. Jasmine, Nicholas and Kayla had fun in the kids' play area running all around - they got along like they've known each other for years :) Nicholas was so cute telling us so many stories and Jasmine was a big help keeping an eye on Kayla.

Sandra getting a baby fix with my chubby boy: (He was 15 lbs at his 4 month check up last Tues).


The kids actually pausing for a moment to indulge me in taking a picture:


Our hubbies being kind enough to take the group photos:

So glad we were able to meet you guys Sandra!


We're heading home tomorrow; hopefully in time to maybe catch some fireworks - if we're not tired enough for them that is!

That's awesome that you got to meet some other bloggers! I WISH we could have gotten together earlier this spring.

I'm always amazed at how good Kayla is socially. She's so grown up!

It's been a while since I stopped by. I CAN'T BELIEVE THAT YOUR LITTLE BABY IS 15 POUNDS.

Good morning dear Michelle:-)

I'm finally catching up on your last few posts...I was gone away for a few days and it's always a struggle afterwards to get caught up! lol

Sounds like you and your family have been having a wonderful time and how terrific that you've been able to meet up with some blogging friends! Love all the pictures.

Hope you had a great 4th of July!! xoxo

Great pics. It looks like everyone had fun. What a great opportunity to meet up like that. I remeber panning for gold when I was younger - I hope Kayla had more luck than I ever did!

Stephanie said...

Killlashandra said...

Wow! Looks like a good time was had by all. Panning for gold is just plain fun. :) I did it when I was a kid in Georgia years and years ago.

Although I have to admit, I haven't had a play date with you guys yet and we live in the same state. hehehehehe...ok I couldn't resist that comment. ;)

There are still butterflies to see you know...

Christina said...

That is so awesome! Looks like a fun meet up for sure! Cute pictures :)

Have you had a chance to breathe yet?! You guys are busy, busy! But what fun :)

Man, I miss Boston. I love that city. Have a great time, and enjoy the East coast!

Love the picture of Kayla with her - SO over the photo shot - look! Eve hasn't stopped asking when she is going to get to play with Kayla again!
